Going to Normandy

Think about Manche Iles Express for your travels from the Channel Islands to Normandy. Once you arrive in Granville, Barneville-Carteret or Dielette, you can take a bus to explore the rest of the Region. 

• From Granville: bus lines in La Manche

• From Barneville-Carteret (line F) & Dielette (line B): bus lines in Cotentin

Region Normandy has developed transport solutions with buses, trains, carpooling. Think about Nomad for your travels around Normandy.





This Saturday don't miss out on what will certainly be a very interesting day on Victor Hugo organised by The Victor Hugo in Guernsey Society.

Follow the conferences online through this link and enjoy!



Barely enough time to finish the cheese from its last visit that the Norman Market is coming back to St Helier from 14 to 17 July.

Along with Maison de Normandie's own stall, 6 traders are coming and will be set up on the Royal Square on Thursday and Friday, then will move to Broad Street over the week-end to join the Fête de St Helier.

We will also be taking advantage of the arrival of the Market to celebrate Bastille Day on the Royal Square!

Join us on the Square on 14 July for some music by DJ Stefunk from 5pm to 8:30pm and let's raise a glass together at 6:30pm! Spread the word and find out more about those two events by clicking on the pictures below.
